[Histonet] non-aqueous, non-xylene mounting media

I am using VectaMount from Vector Laboratories to coverslip stained paraffin
sections for special projects where the specimens/sections cannot be exposed
to xylene or toluene, and the stains cannot be mounted with aqueous media.
This mounting medium is non-aqueous, and xylene/toluene free.

Are there any other commercially available mounting media that meet these
criteria?  And has anyone done any comparisons between brands?  If so, which
one do you prefer, and why?
